Top Of Dawn Redwood Has Turned And Is Growing Upside Down

Question From: Algonquin, Illinois, United States
Q: A Dawn redwood I planted about six years ago has been growing fine and is about 15 plus feet now. I just noticed the top foot or two has turned downward and looks to be growing upside down. Is this a sympton of something? can I correct this?

A: It is a symptom of a problem. If it were my problem I would get an onsite inspection by a professional, a certified arborist. To find one in your area go to and enter your zip code. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
